I have really been struggling for the last 6 weeks or so, low left back and left hip. I have only been on a bike 3 times for short, easy rides. Yesterday, I felt good and it was a gorgeous day. I took my Smoothie out for a 12 mile easy paced ride and did ok. I am now 160 miles short of 5000 for '22. This morning, upon waking, I am in less wake up pain than I have had for those 6 weeks. I had been having a miserable first 2 hours of the day before the pain would ease off, with heat, ice, ibuprofen not much help in that time. Sticking with the PT and the previous mentioned treatments. I surely want to avoid another surgery on my back.

35.5 miles today after a24 mile gravel ride yesterday. Today warmer in the mid seventies. I thin I had a tail wind for 3/4 of the ride. It going to cool off after this weekend so more mountain biking. Trying to decide between a Top Fuel 8 or 9.7. Then the Fuel EX 8 Gen 5 climbs well.

Fall harvest time. Soybeans.

Quick ride today. 17 miles and 1500 climbing. For some unknown reason, climbing really kicked in and was almost effortless. Claimed two fastest segments for my age group on two climbs.

Mt Si on ice

Cascade Mountians

No go road

It was a good day - but chilly - 45*

Did 20 miles round trip this morning before Nicole moved in. A couple of steep inclines I thought my heart is going to pop.

Only 17 miles today... but with 2,000 feet of climbing and descending. Ever since Yarnell Hill tried to kill me on a June day in 1994 (heatstroke, schmeatstroke), I've returned on cooler days to test myself against the steady 7% grade and twisty descent (hello, Mr. Elephannnnttt!") And I think I did OK today.

Did 78 on Saturday, got most in before the wind picked up, so that was good.

I took out my "rain" bike and rode 26 miles today on the Sammamish River Trail. Sunny and 52 dropping to about 46 when I got home around 4:00pm. Took off my sunglasses and it was much lighter out.

Did my second group ride at my ideal pace. Hung with about 10 others, mostly Canadians, for the hour. Will start doing the Thursday ride regularly starting in Dec.
